Slovenia Trip 2017 – Friday 26th May to Sunday 4th June

Hi everyone,

By now, I expect that you will have all seen the photos and videos of our fabulous trip to Slovenia at the end of May. You will now know that the water really is turquoise and the scenery is stunning! We had such fun that we are already planning next year’s trip and it was generally agreed that we would like to go back to Slovenia.

The dates will be Friday 26th/Saturday 27th May to Saturday 3rd/Sunday 4th June (actual dates depend on departure times and travelling arrangements, still to be confirmed.) This is half term week in most schools.

We will once again stay in Bovec and there is one main river called the Soca. If the river levels are high enough, as they were for the whole of our week there, it is also possible to paddle on the Koritnica. The Soca has sections of water at all grades and the Koritnica is a mixture of grade 2 and 3.

This trip is not suitable for beginners (unless you are able to arrange your own coaching), so if you are interested, get yourself to Lee Valley and work on your skills.

The cost of the trip will depend on how you get there, minibus and van costs, vehicle insurance, how much the holiday house costs and how many people are sharing it. This year we paid around £250 each plus our food and drink costs. If you want more information just ask me or anyone who went on the trip this year (they are the ones walking round with great big grins on their faces!)

Let me know if you would like to come on this trip. A £50 non-returnable deposit will be needed to secure your place.
